ARCH: graphic anthropology


Use drawing as a tool to understand the experiences of people in place.


Build a relationship with a participant in the neighbourhood you are studying and make a series of drawings of their experiences/stories/histories.


To challenge the generic idea of ‘the user’ by understanding the nuanced and complex experiences of people in the places where they live, and how the built environment and urban form impact these experiences.


Use architectural skills combined with anthropology, to expand beyond common methods of analysis in architecture.
